Release of North American DVD

A new version of Beauty and the Bike has now been released in the North American (NTSC) DVD standard. The release includes a new 27 minute version of the film, giving cycling advocates the choice of three screening versions (8minute, 27minute and 57minute) for different circumstances.

The 27 minute version was premiered at the ninth Car-Free Cities Conference in York this summer to wide acclaim. Its production follows a number of requests from activists wanting to show the full film, but needing more time for discussion

The NTSC DVD standard is widely used in the USA and Canada, as the default domestic DVD player standard. Most of the rest of the world uses the UK PAL standard, although all personal computers, and an increasing range of DVD players, can handle both formats

A special thanks must go to the wonderful Tad & Lisa Salyards, the Minneapolis cycling advocates, for their help and support during the production of the NTSC DVD. The NTSC version of Beauty and the Bike is available here.
